The distance between Trichy and Chennai is 325 km. It takes a little more than five and half hours to reach Trichy from Chennai. The route is as follows: Chennai - Tambaram - Perungalathur - Vandalur - Otteri - Guduvancheri - Kattankolathur - Maraimalai Nagar (Ford factory) - Chengalpattu - Madurantakam - Melmaruvathur - Tindivanam - Vikravandi - Villupuram - Ulundurpettai - Asanur - Veppur - Perambalur - Srirangam - Tirichy. The road at Villupuram is not well maintained and there is a railway cross at Ulundurpettai which can take some time. But Ulundurpettai has some good restaurants, where one can have very decent meals.

This is a very good trip and enjoy each and every moment. I like the cauvery river, Rockfort temple etc... When i see from rockfort temple all things are in view from that place. Had a comfortable bus ride from Renganathan Travels which has Multi Axle Volvo Buses, timing was perfect from boarding point as well as destination point also. The Travels office was accessible very easily and is close to Central Bus stand.

Good to travel with Parveen Travels. Their destination punctuality was good. Their behavior was good. Totally everything was good. They need to improve boarding punctuality. If they gives charger point in each seat, it will be good. Space between 2 seats is conjuncted.

My opinion its good and comfortable, as I started with Rs 400 to spend my travel charge. That time SRM offered for my friend account, so that I knew about that travel, now I am also using. All are good. I think in festival time they increase the price. That one is not good but overall good.

Travel is not good but its a interesting place to visit. Every time new interesting news from Trichy. I like very much but bus facility is bad and should improve the bus facilities. In Trichy there are some temples which are in good condition and place to visit in Trichy.
